winMBT low percentile hits
I noticed that in the DOS version of MBT very low percentile shots (under 20%) seemed to have a very high hit average, whereas 55% shots don't. This also seems to be occurring in winMBT too.

Is this correct or is it a coding error; and if so can it be fixed?

Re: winMBT low percentile hits
Mmmmhhh in a game that I just finished I received lot of AA fire with 1-3% of hitting probability, and believe it or not, not a single airplane was damaged!

In another game, enemy ATGM infantry with 99% of hitting probability against my APCs and tanks have always hit, reducing my forces to an horde of crews running like hell! http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/image...es/biggrin.gif

Glad I am not the only one, this feature of the game really annoys me.

I haven't noticed that. I find the hits in a game seem to even out the % of hit/miss.

OF course I have had the battle when I had a Cav tank plt fire at a on coming T-62 12 times and miss all of those shots. also had a hit at 4000 meters also.

Re: winMBT low percentile hits
I thought that I had once noticed this, but concluded it was a psychological thing. I think we are more likely to remember a 55% miss than a hit, as well as remembering a 20% hit more than a miss, because those things go against our expectations.

I guess the only way to double check is to get a mechanical counter and do an experiment.

Re: winMBT low percentile hits
I also see most 40-50% chances as a near auto-hit. I cant understand how 5 out of 6 shots that supposedly have a 40-ish percent chance to hit are scoring.

I see this quite consistantly too. Like the rest of you, I figured it was just me too. http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/smilies/wink.gif

Re: winMBT low percentile hits
Noticed the same thing :40-55% chance hits one time ou of 4, whereas 15-20% ones hit half the time. Weird ...

Re: winMBT low percentile hits
I have noticed that T-62 tanks with a %1-3 chance to hit are taking my drones out at 1200+ meters regularly. Last battle I played I lost 8 drones to T-62s within 10 or less hexes of entering play.

This accurcy of the tank MGs has kept me from usinging any AC but drones.

Re: winMBT low percentile hits
So is there anyway for the gamers to fix this problem in a later release?
